Scope Trigger Generators are Synchronizers
Oscilloscope trigger generators are high-performance synchronizers. For lower-speed 'scopes, a delay is placed in the clock path between the first and second of the D flops in the diagram. This gives the first flop output time to settle to a valid logic state within the setup time needed by the second flop so that when the delayed clock comes along, the second flop avoids metastability. The delay time is chosen from the exponential equation to reduce the probability of excessive delay (the metastable state) in achieving a valid output state to an acceptably low value.

Faster scopes use hysteretic RS flops, but that is a longer story ...

An interesting approach to use in wearable systems is related to energy harvesting technology by generating small electric currents by exploiting thermal energy as the difference between two temperatures, that of the body and that of the external environment.
An emerging issue in the computing industry over the last several years is the bandwidth gap between the major communication interfaces (PCIe, Ethernet, USB, etc.), and the external memory interfaces (typically DDR3/4).
The triboelectric effect is defined as a small amount of static electricity generated by the contact and movement of surfaces, used to generate energy that is collected and stored to power sensors and electronics at very low power
The utilization of electronics in medical applications could effectively enhance the quality of life of patients and prevent many cardiovascular distresses: this is confirmed by the result of an observational study, about the CPAP device
This blog series deals with the potential of the utilization of smart electronic ICs in medical care applications; these ICs are produced by companies in the field of semiconductors such as STMicroelectronics which has a broad portfolio of ICs for medical applications
